The Athlete365 Career+ workshops have been created exclusively for Olympians and elite athletes (active or retired) and are delivered by Master educator and five-time Olympian Barbara Kendall.
Ninety-nine per cent of the participant survey respondents have rated these series of online interactive sessions as valuable or very valuable for their life and recommend everyone to try them.
It is important for you to take time to reflect and evaluate who you are and what you want out of life, no matter what stage of your sports career you are at.
Discovery through connections
Five-time Olympian Barbara Kendall, who will be leading the self-discovery workshops, believes that discovering more about yourself is the first step towards your next career move.
“Increasing your self-awareness will support you in recognising what it is you want out of life and the legacy you’d like to leave. It is important for you to take time to reflect and evaluate who you are and what you want out of life, no matter what stage of your sports career you are at. The Athlete365 Career+ Self-discovery workshops – designed by Olympians and experts – will help you answer this question.”
To support your journey of self-discovery, the workshops are split into four interactive sessions, each lasting two hours. Delivered in this order, they will focus on your:
- Strengths and Values
- Interests and Skills
- Passion and Impact
- Purpose and Planning
I liked the fact that athletes shared their experience and ensured that many of the qualities we acquire during our sports career can be used later in the job market.

As they are interactive sessions, you’ll be encouraged to actively learn with and through fellow Olympians and athletes. This will not only help you to discover even more about yourself and empower you to start planning your next steps but also offer you an opportunity to expand your network with athletes from around the world.
For four-time Olympian Eduarda Amorim Taleska from Brazil, learning from stories shared by other athletes was a crucial component of her experience with a previous Athlete365 Career+ workshop: “I liked the fact that athletes shared their experience and ensured that many of the qualities we acquire during our sports career can be used later in the job market.”
Thanks to the Athlete365 Career+ workshops, Matteo Tagliariol, Olympic fencing champion from Italy, could identify the skills he learned through sport and started using them in the business world.
The self-discovery workshops are held in different time zones to allow everyone to join from all over the world.
